    Freaks and Geeks Yearbook Edition

    Is this worth getting instead of the regular box set? I mean, besides the unique packaging, are the extras enough to make it a must-have?

    Wire alumni

    i've been noticing a lot of actors who appeared on the Wire popping up on network tv over the past few weeks. guess the fine work in that series caught the eye of a few casting directors in town. from what i recall(character names to make things easier) omar and vondas on alias ziggy...

    inexpensive DVD player for parents

    my folks expressed an interest in getting a dvd player a while back, but they have no desire in spending more than $100, and the lesser the better. but i don't want them to pick up a piece of crap from wal-mart for $30, so i did a little looking online. of these three, which would most of...

    anyone have or seen Last Place on Earth?

    the adaption of Roland Huntford's book dramatizing the race to the South Pole between Robert Scott and Roald Amundson? I saw it originally on PBS, and have a snowy VHS copy of the series, but just looking for any info on the DVD set. I know as far as content, it's worth a pickup.

    Boomtown 3/9

    this one really strayed from the concept. it was laid out pretty much just like any other cop series. and it now appears they are going to include multi-episode storylines. It was Band of Brothers reunion night on Boomtown last night. In addition to writer/producer Graham Yost, and stars...

    *** Official "DARK BLUE" Discussion Thread

    saw the trailer for kurt russell's newest film and it got me thinking. for the longest time after he first became known as a child actor in bad disney films, he was basically out of the public eye, doing a few tv movies or low budget pictures. Escape From New York was a pretty big career jump...

    question about lovan stands

    since i've added the parasound amp to my system, i'm running out of real estate, so i've been looking at getting a rack. first looking for something fairly cheap, but either the shelf spacing won't work, or it's ugly, or just won't work with what i'm planning. so it looks like i'll have to...

    i posted earlier that i was torn between rotel,and parasound for a separate amp for my system. well, i bought the parasound hca-1500a, and it sounds absolutely beautiful. i'd gone to my local dealer to see if he could order me one, but his sales rep said that this model was being discontinued...

    rotel 1095 vs. parasound 2205

    i just visited the parasound website, and see they've lowered their prices substantially on their products. i've auditioned the rotel with paradigm studio 100's, and a lower line parasound, the 855 with studio 60's, and while they have different sonic characteristics, i love the sound of each...
